the regime of mohammed morsi. this new government is allied closely with hamas. would egypt intervene notwithstanding the peace treaty with israel? >> that is going to be a very tall order for president morsi. yes he is the head of the government and it's in the hands of the muslim brotherhood. egypt is their ally. so out of cairo will be a lot of statements and maybe they could escalated against the camp david agreement. to say that the egyptian armed forces to be pouring into battle by their president is a very difficult thing to imagine. what could happen now is negotiation between cairo, israel and the united states to find a way for a cease-fire. >> gregg: hamas fighters are no match for the israeli military. last ground invasion killed over 1400 palestinians which invites the question, why would hamas break this truce by escalating the rocketed attacks on israel unless they are being directed to do it by their benefactors, their supporters, tehran? >> you know what, this could be the most important question for the debate about the gaza war. i am among those who think hamas does
president, mohammed morsi. he has just assigned himself sweeping new powers. this comes after he helped broker that peace between -- that cease-fire between hamas and israel. perhaps thinking that he is suddenly a leader on the world stage he decided to announce that all of the decisions he has made since assuming office in january cannot be challenged by the egyptian courts. as you can see a number of especially young people in egypt none too pleased about this. they have been protesting in cairo and alexandria and other places. morsi of course an islamist, a member of the muslim brotherhood, the ideological ally of hamas. it is yet to be seen what the response will be from the obama administration to these new powers that he has awarded himself. he has also ordered a new trial for his predecessor hosni mubarak. we will continue to watch the troubles developing inee lit up and the protest both in favor of and against that country's president. we'll keep an eye on it "happening now." also this fox news alert, holiday shoppers nationwide out in droves to take advantage of black friday tk
. certainly, egypt has a hand for mohammed morsi and his disastrous economic policy. but what it has done is taken the nuclear issue off of the table. let's face it, iran has been at war for over 33 years. they conducted another act of war just a week or so ago when they fired an unmanned drone. as usual, we did not come forth to meet the challenge. lou: thank you very much. as you point out, the national media and in this context of the context between israel and hamas, taking note of the president's agenda and the absence of china on this specific event. admiral, we always appreciate talking to you. lou: joining us now is congressman louie gohmert. he was just reelected to a fifth term and he served previously as chief justice. great to have you with us, congressman. >> it's always good to be with you. lou: the speaker making it clear that very positively, potential accommodation if terms are met. that is pretty positive stuff, don't you think? >> well, it is positive. but there is a lot of pressure right now, and of course, the pressure is what can be used. this is the time to be bold.
read a verse from the koran and later egypt's president mohammed morsi gave a fiery speech in support of the palestinian people on state tv. listen. >> we support the people of gaza. what hurts them, hurts us. >> hate and violence between the israelis and palestinians was sparked by this. israel's assassination of hamas's military chief on wednesday. an assassination that israel called necessary because of increased rocket attacks from gaza into israel the last several weeks. our senior international correspondent ben wiederman has been covering the middle east. you've been covering it for decades now. when you see israel moving hundreds of troops to the border of israel and gaza and saying it's going to call up 16,000 more reservists, what does that sound like they're preparing for? >> certainly would case that they're preparing for a ground invasion of gaza. in fact, this is very similar to what happened in the 2008, 2009 fight between hamas and israel. israel for the first few days pounded targets around gaza, and then sent in the troops. certainly, i mean, if you listen, for insta
of the middle east. egyptian president mohammed morsi is prodicting what he calls israel's aggression towards gaza will end today. now, egypt is playing a lead goal in negotiating the cease- fire agreement, a ulthis comes as hillary clinton is flying to the middle east to help with the negotiations to end the fighting in hamas and israel. she left from cambodia. that's where she accompanied president obama at summit meetings with asian leaders. she's due to meet with the palestinian prime minister in jerusalem and other leaders. secretary clinton will not be meeting with hamas, which the united states considers a terror group. >> bottom line still remains that hamas has to stop this rapid fire. so ultimately, they are the ones who are going to have to be part of ending the terror. >> now, more than 100 palestinians and three israelis have been killed in the week- long fighting there. hamas militants are still fighting rockets into israel but most of them were taken out by the u.s. financed iron dome defense system. >> also two media centers -- whoa! that was a rather large explosion. >> i was
, for instance, egypt, anderson has to walk a very fine line. on the one hand, mohammed morsi from the muslim brotherhood does express support for hamas which is an offshoot of the egyptian muslim brotherhood, but at the same time he has to be very careful when it comes to crossing any red lines regarding the peace treaty between israel and egypt that dates back to the late 1970s, but certainly it's a huge change from just four years ago when the war was going on between gaza and israel. when president hosni mubarak, basically, it was well understood that he had no sympathy for hamas because, of course, the muslim brotherhood were his main political enemies and therefore, this situation is completely different, but morsi and egypt has to really tread carefully because many egyptians have no desire whatsoever to get involved in any sort of conflict with israel. egyptians will tell you we fought war after war with israel and we don't want to go down that path again. >> stay safe and thank you all for your reporting. >>> last night we aired this video showing a man being pulled from flames in ga
. the biggest story we're follow something what's going on in egypt with what's going on with mohammed morsi who has come on the stage in a big way now, specificallys it relates to negotiating the truth between hamas and israel. he was center stage and taken this leading role of starting to become a statesman in the arab world. he decreed himself a number of additional powers, which harks back to the time of the mubarak era. some in the opposition in egypt say who named you the new pharaoh? there is thousands of people heading into cairo's tahrir square. some said that number is growing by the minute. these are people in opposition to the muslim brotherhood president who says that he is turning egypt into far too much of an islamic state. that's something to watch going forward. as noon prayers have ended here on this friday afternoon and protesters scheduled in egypt and also in iman, jordan. inside egypt, made a lot of news over the past couple of days. one of the top collaboration in the -- clerics, is now saying that jihad is, quote, obligatory towards muslims and being very, very tough abou
in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night with egypt president mohamed morsi about working together to preserve peace and security in the region. tension between israel and egypt's new islamist government has increased since the attacks with egypt recalling its ambassador to israel in protest. richard haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council last night. sift through this for us. how big is this? how significant is this in the middle east right now? >> well, it's big for lots of reasons, because it's not happening in isolation. one is you have the largest military clashes between israel and hamas in, what, four year now, and it's not going to stop. at times it doesn't matter in the middle east exactly why things begin. over the last few months there have been hundreds of rocket attacks, now this, then retaliation. it just happens. second of all, it's happening in the absence of anything political. there's no dialogue going on whatsoever between israelis and palestinians. this can't substitute for this. thirdly, egyptians withdrew their ambassador. since
for this movement to let their blood be in vain. >> brown: meanwhile, the new islamist president of egypt mohamed morsi denounced the israelis. and his government asked the u.s. to press for an end to the offensive. but the obama administration lined up with the israelis. state department spokesman mark toner said the u.s. believes israel has the right to defend itself. >> our position is clear that there's no justification for the violence that hamas and other terrorist organizations are employing against isrl. and the onus is on them to cease their rocket attacks so that this de-escalation can take place. >> suarez: earlier, i spoke with the israeli ambassador to the united states michael oren to discuss the latest developments. ambassador, what's the latest from tel aviv? where the strikes accurate? have missiles actually hit the city and is anyone snurt >> thankfully nobody was hurt. the rockets struck in the greater tel aviv area. the alarms went off. the sirens, prime minister netanyahu was in the city at the time to a bomb shelter and now this simply means that 4.5 million israelis-- over
's president mohammed morsi tomorrow. later this week he will travel to israel to meet with prime minister netanyahu and also to the west bank to meet the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. the trouble with these negotiations as so often in these cases is who stops firing first. in the word of u.s. officials that is clearly up to hamas to do. listen. >> we have been very clear that israel has a right of self-defense. we have been very clear that rockets continue to be fired and land on israel. we have been very clear that we are working to try to get this conflict deescalated. we have been very clear about our concern for civilians and innocence on both sides. >> important to note that while diplomacy has not yet succeeded, neither, shep, has it failed. shep? >> shepard: jonathan hunt at the united nations for us. well, it was a huge day on wall street. as stocks soared to the best trading session since the presidential election since nearly two weeks ago. if you have been afraid to peek at your 401(k) it might not be a bad idea now. the dow up 207 points. nasdaq up 63. s&p up to 27. app

reporting from the front lines. protesters took to the streets of cairo today after mohamed morsi basically stood by his decision to grant himself sweeping presidential powers and eliminate the judiciary. demonstrators called on morsi to roll back his decree or resign. at least one person died in clashes with police. demonstrators stormed the headquarters of a party backed by morsi's muslim brotherhood. a spokesman said the building was destroyed, dozens of injuries. >>> 213-foot crane caught fire, it partially collapsed. this was on to a university building in sidney today. the crane was carrying 264 gallons of diesel fuel, flames went 32 feet into the air. no one was injured according to the operator lend lease. i wanted to mention that name because it might sound familiar. it is the same company that operated the crane that partially collapsed in new york city during superstorm sandy. the company is still in the process of reviewing that incident. >>> well, for the first time since his arrest two years ago, bradley manning is expected to take the stand in a pretrial hearing this week. no
have had this agreement and then in place for years. once mohammed morsi took over as the president, and he was for the muslim brotherhood, many started to question if you will honor that agreement. it is critical to peace in the middle east. your thoughts now that they are getting involved to some extent? >> first to welcome the peace agreement between israel and egypt is for the mutual interest. i think it is the bedrock of stability in this region. it is important that we really keep that in mind and any move on the egyptian side to try to help out in this situation would be looked upon favorably. but first and foremost responsibility for any government is its citizens. we cannot continue with a situation like that. hamas, in a sense, has turned from the whole region. they are really the enemies of peace and we should really try to work together to make sure that the military infrastructure is weekend to such a manner that we will be able to sit down with moderate palestinians in order to achieve a better understanding and peace. megyn: you have hamas and gaza and iran, sir, than
test for all of us to watch. is the new egypt headed by the muslim brotherhood president mohammed morsi prepared to be a stabilizing force in the region or is it going to move as its ideology might suggest toward an ever more militant stance bringing its basic peace alignment with israel into question? i think one worrisome fact that was in the excellent reports from your correspondents was the lack of support in israel for a ground invasion. prime minister netanyahu is threatening hamas, if you don't come to the table and agree to stop firing missiles, we will invade you. yet hamas surely can watch television and knows how unpopular that invasion would be with the israeli public which limits netanyahu's options. >> on the other hand there's a question of whether president netanyahu has other things that he can do. and who will come to his side in trying to say to the hamas, you know, you face certain kinds of pressures unless you stop the rocket fire. >> the united states has played its hand certainly in a way that -- that helps netanyahu. the u.s., president obama said personally from
a tremendous amount of financial backing, that everybody is watching this new leader, mohammed morsi to see hod see whose side he's on. >> i think he is in a really difficult situation. this is the first time in 40 years that egypt is governed by a very different group of guys. 40 years there's been a peace treaty between israel and egypt. now the nooyi egyptian leader, he's muslim brotherhood. guest what, his cousins are muslim brotherhood hamas. he has a very narrow line to walk. on the one hand if he looks like he's supporting the muslim brotherhood, hamas going up against israel he has to face the wrath of the united states and the pocketbook of the united states. if he doesn't look like he's supporting them he has his own islamist factions inside egypt who will say who needs i we could have had hosni mubarak for this type of reaction. martha: how is this going to play out? >> it remains to be seen. the israelis have gone through full mobilization, they are ready to om it's a costly thing in time and material and money, so for them to do this on a bluff, that is not happening. but they have
of the leverage to pressure egypt is behaving responsibly, making sure president mohamed morsi and the brought muslim brotherhood don't use this as an excuse to break the treaty with israel, which is a real risk. the muslim brotherhood is pushing for it. using our military aid commission egyptian military is doing it job preventing the flow of long-range rockets into gaza. there's a hope for peace i in te region, was built to fight a terrorist organization was able to procure long-range rockets over the past four years and not just due to the muslim brotherhood. cheryl: the israelis are not backing down yet. thank you very much for the perspective, appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. dennis: tuft twinkies. posted in court trying to win approval to liquidate, striking baker's say a buyer could emerge to give them back their jobs. real possibility or state of denial? cheryl: homebuilding confidence of the best levels since may of 2006. you can profit from it, coming up. dennis: and a look at some of the winners on the s&p. nicole: i'm nicole petallides live on the floor of the new york st
almost two years ago, the demonstrators are voicing their anger with president mohamed morsi after what some are calling an unprecedented power grab. cnn's reza sayah is joining us from cairo once again. reza, we're hearing about attacks against several muslim brotherhood offices in egypt. what do you know about that? >> reporter: according to the brotherhood spokesperson, two of their offices were attacked by anti-morsi protesters. the brotherhood says the protesters were carrying molotov cocktails, clubs and knives and destroyed and heavily damaged these offices. remember, muslim brotherhood had called for a one-million-man demonstration of their own today to rival the opposition's demonstrations. late last night they called it off to avoid violence. but in these two particular cities north of cairo, they didn't avoid violence. >> reza, we're also seeing and i want to show our viewers some live pictures from tahrir square in cairo not far from where you are right now. you were there earlier in the day. who are these protesters? and there are huge numbers there. we see the tents. what'
's leader is part of the muslim brotherhood, clearly on the palestinian side. mohamed morsi reaching out to president obama and saying, we consider this an act of aggression on israel's part. and this must stop. how does this endanger the entire region now that egypt's sort of been sucked into all of this? >> reporter: well, everyone here knew that the arab spring really changed things here. and now that you're seeing the leadership in egypt starting to make maneuvers -- everybody was waiting to see how that leadership was going to act towards israel. as you know, they've had a peace treaty for dozens of years. when morsi got into power, he said he would leave the peace treaty alone. however it gives you some idea of how things are changing. there certainly is concern on israel's part. they certainly do not want to be at war with a bunch of different people, surrounded by different countries, that they do not git along with. they already have deteriorating relation with his turkey and now you're seeing egypt. we know for a fact that egypt pulled its ambassador to israel out of israel yes
prison. an update on the middle east, egyptian president mohammed morsi speaking to reporters earlier says israel's aggression against gaza will end today. he did not provide any evidence to support his prediction that an end to the week-long offensive against the gaza is imminent, only saying negotiations between israel and gaza hamas rulers will yield positive results during the coming hours. he did not elaborate. his comments carried by the egypt official news agency tass as international diplomatic efforts to end the fighting picked up pace today with the scheduled arrival later of u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> how does one adequately express his feelings about a special friend? when that friend is also a world icon, and national hero of unimaginable proportions, and a legend whose name will live in history long after all here today have been forgotten? fate looked down kindly on us when she chose neil armstrong to be the first venture to another world and to have the opportunity to look back from space at the b
ringing with calls for the downfall of a dictator. this time it's for this man, president mohamed morsi, whom america relies on to be a regional peace broker. last week he granted himself unchecked power, leading to today's bloody clashes. the crowd is chanting the same chants we heard two years ago during the revolution, except that they have substituted mubarak for morsi. egyptians toppled president hosni mubarak, a dictator who ruled for three decades. they then held a historic election, voted in the new president, and now -- >> he's like a pharoah. >> reporter: morsi's office says the move is just temporary, to sideline remnants of the mubarak era and put egypt on the right track. the wise voices say it is far from clear who will win the showdown. but there are certainly more bloody days ahead on egypt's bumpy road to democracy. >> we said it often here, watching the arab spring take shape over the last, you know, year and a half year or so. the overthrow is the hard part -- the easy part. the hard part is building a real democracy, a last democracy to take its place. "l.a. times" a
is asking all parties to show restraint. the president, according to reports, has spoken with mohamed morsi. he's spoken to the israelis. it's in israel's interest. it's in egypt's interest. it's in the united states' interest to tamp this down. it is not, however, in hamas's interest. hamas's entire strategy is to inspire the same kind of revolutionary spirit that brought down mubarak, that threatens to bring down other leaders, particularly in the gulf states, and to use that energy and rage and channel it against israel. it is the kind of unpredictable situation that egypt will have a tough time dealing with right now and it leaves the united states in a very difficult position. you remember, president obama said in that interview with telemundo that he wasn't sure egypt was really even a steadfast ally right now, he said it's not quite an enemy. right now when you have egyptian officials expressing such solidarity with hamas, it's clear to see why the united states had those doubts. >> richard engel in gaza, thanks very much. >>> we are learning more today about september's deadly consu
, confident that the egyptian president mohamed morsi can deliver right now? >> reporter: i've been told by one senior administration official that they are confident. that they feel like egypt has some skin in the game and really does not want to see this escalate. but the thing is looking to for instance to september this official told me they feel like egypt has come through on small tests. when more security was needed at the embassy in september because of protests there, egypt came through. of course that's on a very small scale, wolf. and the thing is this post-mubarak era, the equation is very different. the u.s. has somewhat of a relationship with the muslim brotherhood ruling egypt, but it is largely untested in a big way at this point. so this is really seen as the big test. there is a bit of a question mark, but yes, i'm told that they are confident that for now egypt can help them. >> let's see if they can. brianna keilar over at the white house. thanks. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent john king. the president's in a tough position right now whachlt can he
